    Because if you think about it, an "F" on the "D" string is really just the 3rd to the 3rd of a G major scale.

    All the notes are related like that, so there really is no wrong note, right?
  2. You need to read Ornette Coleman's harmolodics book.

    Its late; I'm tired. Sure, every note is related to every other, but not every note will sound good in a specific context. 3rd to the 3rd? Not quite sure what you're talking about... F wouldn't even be in a Gmaj. F is the minor 7th of G. If anybody else wants to confirm that I'm not smoking the same stuff Bike-Funney is, I'd appreciate it.

    Exactly. Ever notice how when FiElDy solos, his "Clickety" relates to his "Clackety"? That's because he's tuned into the same cosmic confluence that you've just discovered here. Or, when you're reading from his TaBz, how his X's slapped on his detuned B string relate to his X's slapped on his detuned B str....wait, maybe that's not a clear example....Okay: when you play from TaBz in general, how the numbers on the various strings all relate to each other in a very cosmic, mysterious way? That's because all the numbers that are used in TaBz CAN ALL BE FOUND ON A NUMERIC KEYPAD!!! Isn't that wild? Anyway, I bet that's what you're hearing.

    Keep up the good work. At this rate, I bet you'll be a rock star in no time. :)

    None. At all.
    FWIW, F is the major third of the major third of an A major scale. :)

    Seriously speaking, is there an Ornette book out there? I don't recall seeing it the Aebersold catalog, but I could have missed it.
  6. I think it might be an urban legend.

    I used to tell kids that had never soloed before.

    "just go out there and do your thing, and do it confidently and you will be fine"

    "remember, if you hit a "wrong" note, you can make it right"

    The concept was well recieved by my peers, the youngins and teachers. And for a while I thought it actually was pretty brilliant, then I realized...it's just stubborn.:p

    He's trying to avoid the accusation that he never posts anything music-related - just OT rubbish!! ;)

    But my view would be that "gibberish" doesn't 'count' as music-related!!!

    Even if you do post it in GI! ;)
  11. I can see that Jazzbo's article on theory is going to need to be reworked is as to be more "on the Money".

    Yes, yes, a very bad pun, I know.

    No, it's a diminished 5th up from the 3rd.
